Pretty, pretty, pretty, sweet, and oh, so easy! This post might just be my most favorite yet as it's all about gift wrap and packaging, two things I just love and have so much fun with. I have always been drawn towards small packages because their contents never disappoint!
Papertrey Ink is releasing a new stamp set called Do Me a Favor Tags and they are the perfect little accessory for dressing up your gifts and favors for any occasion. This first gift set uses this new stamp set in conjunction with another new item from Papertrey Ink called Tissue Paper Flowers #1 die....TRUE LOVE I tell you! I chose to wrap up a roll of red and white heart washi tape, a sweet treat for a friend for Valentine's Day, and love how inexpensively this wonderful little favor can bring a simple or not-so-simple gift to life.
The details on the tag are as follows. I stamped the tag image onto Sweet Blush cardstock using Raspberry Fizz ink. I stamped it one more time on White cardstock using Smokey Shadow ink, cut out the frame, stamped the sentiment from the set in Pure Poppy, and adhered it onto the original using dimensional adhesive....just to make the sentiment pop. I then matted the tag onto a tag cut using patterned paper and the Tag Sale #2 die. And, when I think of Valentine's Day, I immediately think of The Sweet Life stamp set, so out I brought it and stamped the cabbage rose in Sweet Blush and Hibiscus Burst with the felt die cut leaves cut from Limeade Ice.
My tissue paper flower wrap consists of 5 sheets of white tissue paper that I coated in three different colors of Glimmer Mist, Cotton Candy, Cosmos, and Peppermint Stick. After I die cut the white tissue using the Tissue Paper Flowers #1 die, I spread each layer out separately and coated the edges of each using the colors I mentioned. I left the centers of each layer completely white just so the color spread out on the tips and created a soft blend. Once dry, I layered them all together and wrapped up my washi tape, securing the layers with soft, pink tulle. I can't wait to try other colors using this same technique.
This next favor uses another new and simple die called the Essential Pillow Box die. It comes together in a breeze and is lots of fun to add your own personality to.
My pillow box was die cut using patterned paper and then embellished with coordinating patterned paper, the new Loop de Loop die, Snowflake Serenade stamp set and die, Holly Jolly die and Limeade Ice felt, Limeade Ice satin, and Heather Nichols' new Framed Out #8 stamp set. It is stamped in Raspberry Fizz and Limeade Ice ink.
Gift cards, jewelry, handmade embellishments, and so many other things are just the right size to fit inside this darling new die.
The other designers have all created gift wrap and favors using these same products but with their own twist! And, all of these new products will be available for purchase at 10 PM EST on September 15th.
Thanks again for stopping by.
